Editor's Note :
In previous years, the Court released orders the morning after the Court’s “Long Conference.” It has not done so this year. Beginning last Term, the Court consistently considered petitions at least two times before granting certiorari.

Issue: (1) Whether a malicious prosecution claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 exists under the Fourth Amendment against an investigating police detective; and (2) whether the Court’s holding in Wallace v. Kato applies to a Section 1983 malicious prosecution claim under the Fourth Amendment not involving a conviction so that the applicable statute of limitations begins running when the claimant was detained pursuant to the arrest warrant.
